The Jalen Hurts fan club seems to have grown by one more member. This one is the head coach of the team that his Philadelphia Eagles will be playing on Sunday. Some call him the best head coach in NFL history. Yep! We're talking about the New England Patriots' on-field leader and general manager, the one and only Bill Belichick.

It isn't often that the grumpy old man in Foxborough is good for a sound byte. He lacks Nick Sirianni's energy and Jalen Hurts' creativity. Come to think of it, we can't recall seeing him smile once at any sit-down he has ever had with media members. Who knows? Maybe he'll soften up and become more engaging as he ages. He could be on his way.

The Eagles and Patriots gear up for a brawl on the NFL's opening weekend.

The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots don't battle often. As members of opposite conferences, the NFC and AFC respectively, unless they meet on football's biggest stage during a Super Bowl (which has actually happened twice), they are only scheduled to meet once every four seasons.

As fate would have it, Philly draws the AFC East in 2023 on their regular-season schedule, and these two proud franchises are scheduled for a Week 1 clash. Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni duels with the G.O.A.T. for the first time (and quite possibly the last). It should be a fantastic use of one's time and an amazing way to spend the afternoon.
